Abstract: It is important to understand the physicochemical mechanisms that are responsible for the morphological changes in the cell membrane in presence of various stimuli such as osmotic pressure. Role of micro domains such as lipid rafts in cellular processes are now beginning to unfold. In this study, we examined how constituent molecules affect the dynamical motion of liposome. We used cell-sized lipid vesicles to enable the direct observation of these changes. We observed the effect of GM1 ganglioside to osmotic transformation in a homogeneous and heterogeneous liposome. Interestingly it was observed that for the formation of sphero stomatocyte their exist a particular critical cut off concentration. Also in the case of heterogeneous liposome it was observed that at 10 % of GM1 almost all domains were pinched out from the vesicles, forming their own homogeneous liposome’s. This finding provides a possible mechanism of apoptosis induction by GM1. Incorporation of GM1 into membrane leads to an increase of the line tension. Thus, necessary proteins can find themselves in one common raft and start the corresponding cascade of reactions.
